Chili-Lime Mango Salsa Hot Dogs

A chili-lime mango sauce covers these hot dogs in a fresh bun. With a little bit of spice and a lot of tang you’ll love this sauce!

So believe if or not, as a child my family did not have a grill. In fact, they still don’t have a grill. I met my now husband and when we were dating he could not believe this fact. He even looked around my family’s garage and shed convinced there was a grill hiding out somewhere. Apparently grilling is kind of a big deal in America.

But don’t worry, I am way on board with grilling. In fact, a grill was one of the very first purchases the husband and I made together once we moved into our house. We even used our moving truck to bring it home before returning the moving truck.

I’m pretty sure we grilled that very first night we got it too. We grill all the time and I’m pretty obsessed with it.  And now I can’t think of summer without thinking of grilling and all the different foods we love making on the grill. One of my favorite is grilled chicken and veggie skewers just because I’m a veggie lover through and through. The husbands favorite? Well hot dogs of course. With the occasional hamburger thrown in there.

Chili-Lime Mango Salsa Hot Dogs I via I #hotdog #grilling #mangoAfter grilling about eighteen million Hebrew National hot dogs this summer (seriously! if you follow me on instagram you will see!), we’ve had to change up how we top them and what we serve them with. I thought of a mango salsa and it kind of morphed into a mango sauce which is the best topping I’ve ever had on a hot dog.

And corn on the cob to go with it? The very best. In fact my ideal sides for any grilled summer meal is a corn on the cob (still haven’t mastered the grilling of these…yet) and watermelon. But it has to be a good watermelon…which means the husband always has to pick it out.

With all that mango piled on top of the hot dog, that’s quite the well-rounded meal as far as fruit and veggies are concerned. I’ll always try to sneak a few more veggies on the plate, but the babe just throws them off the high chair and they tend to get scooted to one side on the husband’s plate.

With grilling season upon us, everyone is craving an all-American hot dog. What makes a kosher hot dog different? It’s all about what makes the cut (and what doesn’t). Hebrew National is choosy about what goes into their franks – only 100% pure kosher beef so you know what you’re getting and they taste great. No artificial flavors, colors, fillers or byproducts. #greatergrilling

    Oh goodness, I’m obsessed with mango salsa AND hot dogs right now. I never thought to combine them! Too funny about the grill – I think my husband and I bought our first the day we moved into our first apartment together. Men take their grills seriously.

    Mmm…chili-lime mango salsa sounds like the *perfect* thing to put on a hot dog (or burgers or chips or just directly in my mouth….)! Alas, I too am without a grill – but I’m guessing this salsa can more than make up for a non-grilled hot dog :)

    I cannot believe your family never had a grill! We grill all the time at my house because we can make a whole bunch of food and then eat leftovers for lunch and dinner throughout the week. We’re always looking of great ways to switch things up too, so I’ll totally have to give this salsa a try! It sounds fantastic! Pinned. :)

    Grilled hot dogs really are the best. My dad used to brush the snow off his grill so we could have grilled burgers in the dead of winter. :)

    The chili-lime mango salsa looks wonder and what an unexpected topping for a hotdog. But I am totally on board with it!

    A little piece of me slowly dies every day we don’t have our grill, I really need to get a new one! These hot dogs look amazing! I always like to jazz up a hot dog with a fun topping and this mango salsa looks perfect!

    I don’t eat enough hot dogs! And if I do, I clearly haven’t been eating them right cause I never make fancy ones. I love the sweet and tang flavors from mango and lime. I can imagine it being excellent in a grilled hot dog! Need to try this, thanks Chelsea!
